Welcome to Camp America | أهلاً بكم في معسكر أمريكي Radius Books 2017 Preorder here A vivid and disorienting glimpse into the U.S. Naval Station in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba (known as "Gitmo"), and its growing diaspora, through photographs, once-classified archival material, and first-person texts. With unique construction in English and Arabic, the book seeks common ground while provoking questions about compromises made in the West between our humanity and our fears in the post-9/11, "War on Terror" era. Essays by Moazzam Begg, Debi Cornwall and Fred Ritchin. Welcome to Camp America reflects three bodies of work (links at left): 1. Gitmo at Home, Gitmo at Play, showing residential and leisure spaces of both prisoners and guards in a place where nobody has chosen to live; 2. Gitmo on Sale, Gitmo's gift-shop souvenirs; and 3. Beyond Gitmo, investigating life after detention with 14 men once held as alleged terrorists, now cleared and freed, living in nine countries, from Albania to Qatar. The limited edition (of 30 books) includes a choice of one of three signed, original 13 x 19-inch prints (editions of ten each): Smoke Break, Camp America; Prayer Rug with Arrow to Mecca; or Fidel Bobblehead. This project was made possible with generous support of the Vital Projects Fund at Proteus, the Speranza Foundation, the Violet Jabara Charitable Trust, the David Rockefeller Fund, the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation, the Puffin Foundation, the Pollination Project, private donors, and fiscal sponsorship by the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA).
